How out of shape have you been?
My level of physical fitness has fluctuated somewhat over the course of my life (between 150 and 190 pounds, I know that's not a huge margin), but I've never been super fit. At my best, I think I could sprint half a mile and recover pretty quickly.
But when I get out of shape, I really get out of shape. My weight is back up and I've had very little physical activity for the past several months, so I decided to hit the tiny track outside my office. Result: Gasping for breath with legs that feel like cinder blocks after all of 15 seconds, and I was only jogging.
It reminds me of when I was talking to a female friend of mine who was playing Ring Fit Adventure to get in shape. I remarked that I probably couldn't do half the stuff she was doing and she said "do you not work out AT ALL?"
While I catch my breath, what's the most out of shape you've been? Also, any advice for getting back in the game? All I know is running, really.
